I notice that you use plain, simple language, short words and brief sentences.
That is the way to write English - it is the modern way and the best way. Stick
to it; don't let fluff and flowers and verbosity creep in. When you catch an
adjective, kill it. No, I don't mean utterly, but kill most of them - then the
rest will be valuable. They weaken when they are close together. They give strength
when they are wide apart. An adjective habit, or a wordy, diffuse, flowery habit,
once fastened upon a person, is as hard to get rid of as any other vice.
